Flatland School 3.0 by Markus Schwital - Results and Photos

For the third time Markus Schwital organized a flatland school event in his hometown in the south of Germany. He shared photos a little report with us. Once again we have to thank Markus for doing such a great job and would like encourage you do to the same!

"Throughout the past month I have taught 13 children the basics on their BMX bikes. Every weekend I met with them and the training was a lot of fun for them. Now as a final event we did a contest for the kids with prizes mainly sponsored by Kunstform as well as Maruel Clothing, Shokomonk and Redbull. Last weekend every kid had a run and you could really see good progress. Now that I finished school I might do more in this direction, let's see! I'll keep you posted!"

Royan Contest Highlights


This is one of the best contest edits we've seen in a while. Great filming from many different angles! It certainly does the contest justice - we were impressed by the number of riders that competed (results). Enjoy the footage!




Big Heresy Frame Update + Pegs and Seat


During the Astrolabe we posted a spy pic of the new Heresy flatland frame on Instagram. Today Heresy released all the details on their new frame and it's basically a whole range of flatland and street frames. They are all based on the original Ascend frame but depending on the top tube length there are changes in the geometry in order to make the longer frames more street compatible:

"We’ve been riding the AscenD 19’’ since its creation, 4 years ago : 4 great years of progression and fun on our bikes. The goal was to make a frame inspired by the riding we wanted to learn—not the trends of the market, hoping to make this frame a classic design that would stand the test of time. More and more riders of all ages and riding styles take notice and are expecting more size options of AscenD frames to match their needs.

18’’ (kids, flatland) (not pictured)
18,5’’ (flatland) (not pictured)
19’’ (flatland)
19,5’’ (flatland)
20’’ (flatland, street)
20,5’’ (flatland, street)

Far from being just a suite of different sizes of the same frame, these 6 AscenD frames have been created as 3 pairs:

- The 18’’ and 18,5’’ are shorter versions of the original 19’’ with the right adjusted proportions both on the front and back triangles for a well-balanced frame fitting kids or small riders.
- The 19,5’’ is paired with the 19’’, only different in design by the length of its front triangle.
- Finally the 20’’ and 20,5’’ are « natural » evolutions of the 19’’ as well : we had been dreaming of these frames as the combination of classic elements (BB height, standover) meeting the progressive AscenD design. The result is two longer but responsive frames with a unique design, crossing over the blurred lines of two worlds who have never shared so much riding than in recent years : Flatland and Street."

In addition to the new frames there are some really good looking new pegs and a pivotal seat:

Dub's new Rodeo trick


Dub is a master on the backwheel and has been working on this trick which he calls Rodeo for several years. Much respect for his perseverance! Check this comment he posted on FB:

"Currently injured at the knee I have to put the bike aside for some time , but here is a trick I've been working on for the longest time. It took me three years to finally get to the other side of the bike witthout scuffing or braking , just pure pivots and turbines switch footed on the peg and on the pedal. It might look easy but the complexity of this trick is quasi unfathomable.This was shot on the trip to Barcelona for the Barcelona Extreme competition..."
